Announcing the Puppy Protection Act!

Last week Puppy Mill Awareness of SE Mich, the Michigan Humane Society and powerhouse lawmakers announced the Puppy Protection Act at the capital!  

This critical piece of legislation will crack down on puppy mills and put up a roadblock for any puppy mill that’s looking to locate here in Michigan. We will need your help in getting the bills passed. Read more...

Our state must act now to ensure that Michigan never becomes a hot spot for mass-produced puppies sold for profit like are close neighbors Ohio and Indiana. Large-scale breeders will have to provide animals with quality housing (no wire floors), a large enclosure space and sanitary conditions, as well as exercise and veterinary care. The bills will also make sure that these facilities are inspected regularly, something many currently avoid by licensing their dogs individually.
